  • I am not in your position, but I wanted to tell you to stay strong! If you have people to support you, keep going and don't let anyone or anything stand in your way! If you believe in yourself, you can do whatever you want to with your life and be a great mom in the process =)

  • I was in high school when I had my daughter. Thankfully my parents supported me finishing school. I didn't go to college, because I wanted to get married. It was the best thing I ever did. I received the skills and a diploma which helps alot. I now work at a high school and tell the students to look for a way to stay in school. Most schools have different programs that will help. Ask them lots of questions.

  • if your pregnancy is going well, and you feel comfortable going to high school, i applaud you. I'm 18 now, and i got pregnant in my junior year. i dropped out because i was missing too many days. i was going to repeat. so why waste time doing it all over when a GED is basically the same. I got my GED while i was pregnant, I'm taking training classes during the summer, doing an internship in september, and am going to college the following year..(working for a minimum of 4 years). I just don't like how negative some people make it seem. if you have the right reasons for it, there's nothing wrong with getting a GED, as long as you wont become a couch potato and do nothing with your life. Your GED can take you as far as you want it to. And FYI, employers now a days have opened their eyes, and have realized diplomas, degrees, certifications, etc. don't mean much without experience or natural talent, and some knowledge.

  • remember, employers are normally trying to pay as least as possible. just a thought. i know my GED is taking me farther than the diploma of most of my former classmates.
